How many words for love?

How many words are there for love?

The Greeks; they knew the score.

Four main words, and more than nine more.

There’s Agape: The gods favour you above another.

There’s Phileo: The affection between sister and brother.

There’s Eros: I love you with every inch of me.

There’s Stergo: you are my child, you are the best of me.

All these words to mean I care. I listen. A version of me exists only for you.

Don’t leave me. Don’t silence me. Don’t kill the part of me within you.

I live

I love

I am.
